  • Floyd Rose FRT-O2000

    I am slightly confused as to weather this is a "real/official" floyd rose and where it stands compared to other floyd roses? Thanks

    Itís Korean made- itís the one Floyd sells to guitar makers as OEM.


    Same specs except for one issue :

    Biggest complaint with them compared to a German Floyd is the threaded collar for the trem arm is wonky and loose compared to a German Floyd, but for $15 you can replace it with a German made collar, or the push in collar , which Iíve found to be the most stable

          The Floyds goes as follows Original Floyd, FRT5000,2000,1000, Special. The Original Floyd is superior, and the subsequent models got inferior metal in their baseplates and cast saddles. Those other floyds are just dumbed down versions to sell to oem manufacturers to keep the price down.
          Sure you can "upgrade" them by interchanging OFR parts, but I really wouldnt. The FRT-2000's fine tuners felt like the threads werent cut good or they need oiled and worked loose a little bit... i didnt like that at all. Cant speak for its stay in tune-ness yet cause I didnt get that guitar home yet, but I already have an '88 OFR set aside to swap in its place...
          87 Kramer Pacer Deluxe, 87 Kramer Pacer Imperial, 88 Kramer Nightswan, 83 Kramer V, 88 Kramer F3000, 87 Charvel Model-3, Charvel Jake mutt, > into some rack stuff.

              Not the specials,,,,,,,,,, but the others I believe do match-up (mount-post) with the German-OFR,,,,,costly upgrade if you buy one new though.

                  Of course it's best to get measurements if possible. You don't want to mess with altering the mounting positions.
